Re: What Hat to Wear While Sailing ?

been wearing a Frill Neck (Frillneck UTE Products) for years, get a few curious looks ashore but at sea they are comfortable and you can cover up to all but your sunglasses when it's really bright.

Re: What Hat to Wear While Sailing ?

Skipmac, the Tony Bahama hat we speaking of is shown in post # 21 in this thread. Mine is the same except for the band shown it's mesh top and full brim that is quite stiff and not effected by wind ! it could use a chin strap for those gales LOL but because of the mesh top thats easy to fix !! anyway they come in more then one colar but I have a grey one( same as my beard LOL)

Here in Ireland it's more down to keeping warm, not shielding from the sun.

Re: What Hat to Wear While Sailing ?

Same up my way. I don't see the sun often enough to worry about UV exposure.

Re: What Hat to Wear While Sailing ?

I prefer tin foil. Passing satellites set up for mind reading are the number one cause of alien abductions from small boats. Please note the antennae for a proper Faraday cage. They are essential

You're not the only one. I have the same problem. I Love Tilley hats, but they are pretty much useless on the boat. Put any wind on them and the brim flops all over the place. All I want is a wide, stiff brimmed hat that can handle some rain, and is cool enough to use on the hot days (which aren't too many up here on Lake Superior ).

Actually, I think someone posted a link to Barmah hats which might do the trick. I haven't bought one yet. Anyone currently using one?

Hi Bob,

OK, now I'm thoroughly confused. I found a web site for Tommy (not Tony) Bahama hats and the link in post #21 is for Barmah hats from Australia.

When you mentioned lead I was wondering if they put that hat on people and then use them as a lead line. You know, just a quick loop around the ankles and pitch em in.

Late to this thread but there is no doubt what I wear! It covers the ears and stays on usually. When I go down the tropic I will probably look like Obiwan Kniobi...
